Average Joes Entertainment recording artist Adam Wakefield releases his debut full-length album Gods & Ghosts today across all digital retailers. On the cusp of the release, Pandora named him an artist to watch in 2019. Gods & Ghosts marks Wakefield’s most vulnerable, autobiographical release.

Gods & Ghosts is available for streaming and purchasing HERE.

Living up to his role as “the roots-music community’s newest Renaissance
Man” (Rolling Stone Country), Wakefield not only wrote or co-wrote each
of the twelve tracks, but also tracked a variety of instruments and
co-produced the project with Scotty Murray. Prior to releasing the full
album, Wakefield teased fans with three lead singles — “As Good As It
Gets,” “Dry Days” and “Cheap Whiskey & Bad Cocaine.” The full album
is expected to ship to Americana Radio in January 2019.

“I can’t wait for folks to hear this new record. I really think the band
and I stumbled on some lightning in a bottle on this one. I couldn’t be
more proud of this record,” Wakefield shares. “I set out to record an
album that would fit in the vinyl basket with the rest of the records I
grew up listening to and I think we might have pulled it off.”

Having come from a modest upbringing in rural New Hampshire, Wakefield
proves it’s not where you come from that counts. It’s where you’re going
and how you get there — which, in his case, is on the wings of his
undeniable talent.

“I’m not saying I’ve had a hard life,” Wakefield says. “But when I write
songs about somebody dying or trying to get sober, these are
experiences I’ve had. The more you wear your heart on your sleeve as a
writer, the better the tunes seem to turn out. That’s what John Prine,
Jamey Johnson and people in that vein do. That’s where I want to go with
what I do.”

Wakefield has already received early playlist support from Apple Music
(Best of the Week, A-List: Americana, Outlaw Country), Spotify (Country
Rocks), Pandora (New Country Now) and YouTube Music (Country’s New Crop,
The New Americana).

About Adam Wakefield:

in 2017 as one of Rolling Stone Country ‘s “10 New Artists You Need to
Know,” Wakefield didn’t intend on becoming an artist. In fact, the New
Hampshire native’s original goal was to become a musician. But a move to
Music City quickly cemented his place as a lead on every stage he
played. After being discovered one night at a gig in Nashville by
someone from NBC’s The Voice, Wakefield landed a spot on Team
Blake and was ultimately named Season 10 Runner Up. His newfound name
recognition was the catalyst to pursue a solo career and he subsequently
released his debut self-titled EP in July 2017. Soon after signing with
Average Joes Entertainment earlier this year, Wakefield released new
singles “Dry Days” and “Cheap Whiskey & Bad Cocaine.”
